For some it's almost over, for others it's just around the corner: summer vacation! openHPI is also taking its summer break, but to make sure you don't get bored in August, we have re-activated some popular courses for you.
Courses - including exam and record of achievement - openHPI Summer School
From now until 15 September you can take these courses from previous years and complete them with a record of achievement:
- Tatort Internet – Angriffsvektoren und Schutzmaßnahmen
- Mastering Design Thinking in Organisations
- Digital Health für Anfänger
- A Half Century of Internet: How it works today
- Internet Security for Beginners
- Wie designe ich meine eigene Homepage?
- Künstliche Intelligenz und Maschinelles Lernen für Einsteiger
- Blockchain - Revealing the Myth
- Data Engineering und Data Science
All graded homework and final exams are open again, and can be taken until 15 September. The discussion forum is available in the re-activated courses in reading mode. You have the possibility to take the courses in self-study and at your own pace. There is no moderation by a Teaching Team.
Since we think that learning involves exchanging ideas with others, we have set up an openHPI Summer School course to which we cordially invite you: https://open.hpi.de/courses/summerschool2021.
Here you have the opportunity to exchange ideas with other learners and, on top of that, to receive an Open Badge for participating, which you can share via social media.
The web technologies course series starts on 1 September
We will continue regularly after the summer break on 1 September.
At this time, there will be three 2-week courses on web technologies in the program for you:
- Wie das Web technisch funktioniert - Starting on 1 September
- Programmieren fürs Web - Starting on 22 September
- Wegweisende Anwendungen im Web - Starting on 13 October
The three courses will be led by openHPI founder Prof. Christoph Meinel. If you have completed all three courses with a confirmation of participation, you can take the combined exam “Zum Web-Experten in 3 Schritten” and, if you successfully pass, acquire a qualified certificate. Why not take a look at the course "A Half Century of Internet - How it works today" as preparation for this course series?
Künstliche Intelligenz und Maschinelles Lernen in der Praxis
All those who enthusiastically followed the first course by Johannes Hötter and Christian Warmuth on “Künstliche Intelligenz und Maschinelles Lernen für Einsteiger” should note the follow-up course, which starts on 6 October. In the 4-week course “Künstliche Intelligenz und Maschinelles Lernen in der Praxis”, interested people without programming experience will learn how machine learning projects are implemented in practice.
Watch the trailer for the course here, and register for free: https://open.hpi.de/courses/kipraxis2021
If you missed the first AI course, you can watch it again as part of our openHPI Summer School.
Open Badges now also on openHPI
In the future, anyone who successfully completes an openHPI course can look forward to receiving an Open Badge, in addition to the usual record of achievement. Learners can easily download this badge to their computer or to a central platform such as badgr or Open Badge Passport. The advantage of badges is, on one hand, that they contain a built-in link all the information that is also on the certificate, such as name, course result and date of issue. On the other hand, badges are so popular because you can easily share them via social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) or email, or print them on business cards or cover letters.
openHPI also issues Open Badges retrospectively for all courses from 2018. So if you've achieved an openHPI badge in the last few years, take a look at your profile under “Certificates”.
We look forward to seeing you again soon in our online courses and wish you a wonderful, eventful summer!
